On Feb. 26, “Scratches” creator Agustín Cordes' horror adventure title “Asylum”, which has already been green lit on Steam, met its Kickstarter goal of $100,666 with 46 hours remaining before it’s deadline on Thursday. As of this publication, the current total is sitting at $107,382.
In honor of this milestone, developer Senscape has announced a new goal of $166,666, continuing their tradition of using novelty numbers when it comes to their budget. The new goal would bring the game to mobile devices, but most notably it would bring players a 6 to 8 hour expansion called “Asylum: Memories”. The developer described the expansion as “dreamy, melancholic and *gasp* even beautiful”.
“Asylum: Memories” would be set during the day – the opposite of the main game’s night time setting – and would follow an urban explorer looking to discover what became of a long lost family member.
If funded, the expansion would retail for $10, but those who donate more than $15 will receive it for free, along with a copy of the base game.
With just under two days to go, it seems unlikely that Senscape will be able to fund the expansion, but it will at least hit its next $110,000 target, which would ensure a release of “Asylum” for iPad. At $120K and $125K they would have funding for Android and Ouya versions, respectively.
“Asylum” is slated for release in December on PC, Mac, and Linux. The expansion, if funded, will be expected for a mid-2014 release.
